Herbie!

This is a card for my nephew's birthday. He passed his test not long ago and loves to get out and about in his dad's car so I have been teasing him saying he needs a little Herbie of his own lol. This image from Charmed Cards is absolutely perfect for him! The papers are from Brenda Pinnnick. I coloured the image with promarkers and kept the car mostly white just shading with pale grey no. 2 , 3 and 4. I added a stamped sentiment with a ribbon and staple and two brads and the name in white peel offs.
I am entering this into these challenges;
1. Dottie's World - let's go to the movies (Herbie film)
2. Mad for Markers - colouring white
3. Donna's Den - green cards
4. Cards for men - 1 image, 2 papers, 3 embellishments

Excuse me for my punctualization: in Italian this is called "deformazione professionale" - it means that you always behave just like you do your job. I don't know if my explanation is clear. In my job I often look for mistakes : can you guess what my job is? Hugs & kisses. Miria

Karin said...

Wow, fab coloring!! Love it!

Miria said...

Correct, I'm a teacher! Actually... and luckily looking for mistakes is just part of a teacher's job but - you know- after years and years ( perhaps I've never told you but I'm an old teacher - lol) ... you can't help doing it. I've just made a new Christmas card - again-. I'll post it tonight. Miria xxx
